Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7206) External Exception framework v2 (simplifies and replaces HBASE-6571)
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2012 02:15:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7206?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13508129#comment-13508129

stack commented on HBASE-7206:

Very nice design proposal.  Definetly makes it easier reviewing this new addition.  Thanks.

"We need a way of sending exceptions from 
other threads/processes to another thread so that it 
can cancel the potentially long running process"

What is difference between this and a message bus?

Why exceptions only and not general messages passing?

Looks like a Future?  Or a DistributedFuture?

"Other threads periodically polls that container and aborts 
if there is an ‘external exception’"

The focus is on 'exceptions'.  Could we pivot and talk about successes instead?  The framework
is about reporting result of remote process.  Usuaally they succeed but there is also provision
for reporting why it failed (the exception)?

ExternalExceptionSnare... nice class name.  Poetic.

What action does a watching process take on an ExternalException?  It cancels what it was
doing?  Or we are watching for ExternalException because in their absence, we know whatever
we set running is proceeding?

Yeah, not clear on this one (I'm not the brightest so you'll have to bring me along).... look
forward to answers above.

Good on you Jon.

> This provides a way of sending exceptions from 'external' threads/processes (not the
main executing thread) to others that poll cooperatively for external exceptions.  Some examples
of how this can be used include: having a separate timeout thread that injects an exception
when a time limit has elapsed (TimeoutExceptionInjector, was OperationAttemptTimer), or having
an exception from an separate process delivered to a local thread.  
> This simplified version is centered around the ExternalException class.  Instead of using
generics and ErrorListener interfaces, this more straight-forward implementation eliminates
many of the builders/factories and generics.
